VI. General Bidding Rules

          The bidding process in PinoyTiangge is a standardized form of negotiation, whereby, the placing of bids is considered as an offer to purchase goods or service. The actual sale is consummated or perfected with the person having the highest offer being the final contracting party.

          Any bidding advice or other written advice (for instance, 'Help Topics' articles) posted on the Website are provided solely as suggestions and are not intended to be relied upon. PinoyTiangge is not responsible for any actions taken due to a user or other person having read or been told about such advice. 

          All users are advised to monitor their bidding practices. Placing bids on the Website frequently or repeatedly can incur high costs. Users should therefore pay attention to their bidding practices and ensure that they bid within their budget. For more advice about how to use PinoyTiangge responsibly, please see (NA)

a.   While up to 2 members in the same household are permitted to have separate accounts, they are not permitted to bid on the same auctions. Evidence of this activity will be deemed collusion and will result in all offending accounts being closed permanently.

b.   If any payment by a User for Bid Points or Products or Bid Bundle is returned or dishonoured, the User will be charged a fee equal to P2000 per transaction, which is a fair approximation of PinoyTiangges' costs and expenses of such return. Without limitation to any other rights or remedies, PinoyTiangge reserves the right to disable such User's Account until all obligations are paid in full.

c.   Bids placed & items won in violation of our Terms & Conditions will be forfeited.

d.   Purchasing Bids / Bonus Bids Points

  1. Rights to bid in an auction ("bids") must be paid for by users prior to online bidding. Bids can be purchased in packages ("Bid Points") at the prices in force at the time of purchase. Purchased bids do not expire, are non-transferrable, and are not refundable unless otherwise specified by PinoyTiangge. Details can be found at the Website. Payment for bids can be made via payment agents such as PayPal, DragonPay and CashSense. 
  2. If the registered user who purchased Bid Packages wishes to apply for refund for reasonable cause or found our services not suitable for the user, the request can be granted provided that the purchased was made 7 days prior to request through email. All remaining Bid Points will be refunded on its equivalent monetary value the day the Bid Packages was purchased. Details of refund will be sent through email. The refund policy is made to protect consumer's right inside Pinoy Tiangge.
  3. Selling or reselling of PinoyTiangge bid points is not permitted without the written approval from PinoyTiangge or one of its authorized agents.
  4. Selling or reselling PinoyTiangge bid points at discount by other users who are not Official Distributor or Dealer of PinoyTiangge is strictly not permitted.

VII.   How to Place a Bid: 

          Users can place bids by physically clicking on the bid buttons. Once a bid is placed, it is deducted from the user's bid account. If more than one bid is required for each button press, this will be clearly marked on the bid button.
          The user is prohibited from using bidding software not authorized by PinoyTiangge. Doing so will constitute a Breach subjecting the user to immediate disqualification.

VIII. How an Auction Works: 

          With each bid placed the price of the item on which the user is bidding increases by the amount designated on the Website by PinoyTiangge. A bid submitted by the user conveys the willingness of the user to enter into a binding contract with PinoyTiangge for the item offered at the price of that bid. In the event that bid is the last bid made at the end of an auction, the bid constitutes a binding contract with PinoyTiangge to purchase the item of the auction at the final bid price and under the conditions set out in the pages which provide the details for each specific auction. A contract to purchase the item does not come into effect until the auction is finished and the last bidder has followed all the steps in the next section. 

          Each item for auction has a “countdown timer” which indicates the time remaining in the auction. As auctions approach their end, each new bid placed resets the "countdown timer" at the interval specified for that item on the “reset timer”. The auction ends when the remaining time reaches zero. The user who was the last to bid then wins the auction. All other bids on the item expire and, as indicated, are non-refundable. The last bidder is determined according to the records in PinoyTiangge's database. PinoyTiangge's determination of the last bidder shall be final (save in the case of manifest error). 

          Bidding on auctions is influenced by the different limits and determined by the administrators during the auction.

          PinoyTiangge reserves the right to introduce special auctions such as, but not limited to, limiting the number of auctions won during a specific period. Furthermore, PinoyTiangge reserves the right to change parameters of the auction at any time including but not limited to win limitations, bid increments, auction timer, and the required “bids per bid”.

          PinoyTiangge reserves the right to reject any attempt of bidding based on (but not limited to) previous auctions won, number of auctions won in last 48 hours or fraud investigation. The user agrees to acquire the right to purchase in PinoyTiangge a maximum of 5 items (including bid points) per 10-day period.

          PinoyTiangge reserves the right to discontinue special auctions as outlined above, or any other special auctions it may choose to institute, at its discretion.

IX. Acceptance of the Win, Payment and Delivery

          After an auction has ended, the last bidder (the "winner") must begin the process to claim their item. The winner can do this by clicking the claim button for that auction item or by going to My Wins in the My Account section of the website and clicking the Won! Claim Item! link. After clicking the claim button, the winner must select a payment provider and pay the total price for the win by following the steps indicated on the following pages the winner is directed to. After confirming the win and paying the amount due using the selected payment provider, the winner will receive a confirmation e-mail from PinoyTiangge. Subsequently the item will be delivered to the winner (subject to the remedies for breach of a Term set out in this Agreement.) 

          If an auction win has not been confirmed by the winner and paid within seventy-two (72) hours of the auction end time, PinoyTiangge reserves the right to withdraw the offer to conclude a contract. If PinoyTiangge withdraws the offer, the winner's right to pay for and receive delivery of an item will be permanently revoked. In this instance, the bids placed in that auction are non-refundable. 

          Should bids that have already been purchased and used by a user not have been fully paid for, payments subsequently received from this user shall be treated as payment toward the bids not yet fully paid for. PinoyTiangge reserves the right to retain the item purchased at auction until all bids and the total price have been paid for in full. PinoyTiangge reserves the right to charge the winner reasonable storage charges for items not paid for. 
          Once payment has been successfully made, PinoyTiangge reserves the right to ask for submission of a valid identification for proof of identity purposes.
          If PinoyTiangge suspects that the user won under false pretenses including but not limited to playing under someone else's name, PinoyTiangge can refuse delivery of the item without any refund of payments made or bids used.
         Pinoy Tiangge solely reserves the right to re-auction the item, to unpublish the auction and the winner, and other related details in case of unexpected circumstances such as but not limited to server and system failure and other system related issues. All auctions under this incident will automatically be marked as void and Pinoy Tiangge is responsible to refund all the bids used to those who participated in the said auction.
           Publicity. PinoyTiangge reserves the right to publish the name, region address and photograph of the winners. This rule is one of the conditions of participating on the Website, which allows PinoyTiangge to provide the public with proof of the auctions won by users. This constitutes a fundamental transparency issue.

        As a winner of a major auction, users may be asked, depending on advertising needs, to take part in a photo session and a brief interview about the circumstances surrounding his/her/its win. The following rules apply to the photo session: 

1. The face must be uncovered.

2. PinoyTiangge might require photo ID to confirm the winner's usual appearance. If a winner refuses to comply with these rules, PinoyTiangge reserves the right to suspend delivery of the prize.

          The information gathered may be used to write a press release sent to the media and may also appear in one of PinoyTiangge's commercials, including but not limited to, television and radio, as well as on the Website.

         Delivery of the item is also subject to the absence of fraud. Any form of cheating or unfair practice including but not limited to team play, account that is under household of suspended account/s, credit card fraud, chargeback, playing under a false identity, using multiple accounts or using other user’s account will result in forfeiture of the win. Furthermore, Pinoy Tiangge reserves the right to delay shipment of any items pending investigation of suspected foul play.

X. Cancellations

          PinoyTiangge grants winners the right to cancel a purchase for a full refund of the auction end price, less restocking fees, even if the goods are not defective in any way, subject to the limitations provided in these Terms. This cancellation right terminates at 5 pm on the day, which is fourteen days after the day on which a winner receives the goods or a notification that the goods are ready for collection. Day one of this fourteen day period is the day following such receipt or notification.

          The right to cancel does not apply in the event the item consists of audio or video recordings or computer software whose packaging has been unsealed after delivery or collection. These items are not eligible for return or refund. Sets or boxes can only be returned in their entirety. If a winner wishes to cancel the contract within the fourteen day period, they must inform PinoyTiangge in writing (by letter or email). The winner must retain proof that the writing was transmitted within such 14 days. Cancellations by phone will not be accepted.

XI. Indemnity
